Canelo-Lara Honor & Glory PPV Purses For MGM Card

By Anson Wainwright

According to Nevada State Athletic Commission the purses for Saturday’s Showtime Pay-per-view have been logged as follows.
 
Canelo Alvarez will receive $1.5million for his headlining bout against Erislandy Lara, though he can expect to earn substantially more based on the revenue generated by the PPV. While Lara will make a career high $1million, again he will get a cut of the PPV pie.
 
Abner Mares returns from his shocking first round knockout last August against Puerto Rican Jonathan Oquendo in a ten-round featherweight attraction. Mares purse is $400,000 while Oquendo will be paid $50,000.
 
Johan Perez and Mauricio Herrera meet at junior welterweight for Perez WBA “Interim” title, the champion makes $100,000, while Herrera makes $125,000.
 
In an interesting crossroads junior lightweight match up Juanma Lopez will make $125,000, while Mexico’s Francisco Vargas pockets $75,000.
 
Though the Tomoki Kameda vs. Pungluang Sor Singyu WBO bantamweight title fight isn’t part of the PPV, it will take place on Showtime Extreme. Kameda’s fee is $60,000, while the Thai challenger trousers $40,000.

If Angulo, a punching bag fought Canelo and sold 350,000 ppvs, then a legit fighter who's not coming in after a loss ( Angulo ) will sell 400 - 500k ppvs. Now if it is true that Pacquiao earned around…

I'd be surprised if this did more than 300k

[QUOTE=RlCKY;14746841]Canelo will be making less when he blows weight and has to pay Lara.[/QUOTE] He will make more because of the PPVs and advertisements. No one cares about Lara. So STFU.

[QUOTE=Respect Power;14746744]Regardless of the outcome on this great weekend of boxing I'm happy that Lara's decision to defect from Cuba has now definitely paid off . Seems like more than a fare split. He should be able to support his…
